Interchange raises more than CZK 240,000 for the People in Need organisation through its public collection boxes at Václav Havel Airport Prague and its own contribution

Interchange raised more than CZK 120,000 during 2017 for the People in Need organisation (‘PIN’) through its collection boxes at Václav Havel Airport Prague. The company has now matched the collection by donating the same amount itself, giving a total donation of almost a quarter of a million Czech crowns.

All of the money donated will go to PIN’s public collection known as “a Better School for Everyone” which focuses on the education of children living in difficult conditions. Through this programme, PIN organizes the tutoring and further support of more than 600 children from poor families, of which many are already showing significant improvement in their studies. In addition, almost 800 children have attended PIN’s clubs, either to do their homework or just to spend their free time carrying out a meaningful activity. Interchange has agreed with PIN that its donation will be used specifically for afternoon learning activities and summer camps for children that are already engaged in their education programmes.

Talking about this, Martin Kovalčík, Media Coordinator from the People in Need organization said:
„Such learning activities are great motivation and a kind of reward for the children who have rarely or never attended any type of music or sports courses, nor taken daytrips or attended summer camps, because their parents either can’t afford, or have no interest in supporting such activities. For these children, going to a summer camp, for example, can be a stimulating experience that leads them to live their lives in a whole new way.“

Talking about the 2017 collection, and Interchange’s own contribution, Alastair Holberton, CEO of the International Group Interchange, said:
” I applaud the work of PIN. It is the right thing to do to help these children and it is satisfying to see we can make an ongoing contribution. We are deeping our involvement through a direct contribution to afternoon learning activities, daytrips and summer camps for the children of the PIN centres.”
